Looking Glass, a full service salon, is the realization of a long time dream. Owner Kricket (Selena Wrenn) began her career in Memphis, TN, and has been in the business of beauty since she was seventeen. She relocated to Asheville, NC in 1999 finding it a fertile haven for her creativity.
The name Looking Glass Salon was inspired by the Hathor mirror used by the ancient Egyptians to see through “the eyes of the heart.” Even as she recognizes the outer beauty in all her clients, Kricket has always known how important it is to be able to see beyond the surface of things. She inspires her clients to find comfort in their appearance, acceptance of who they truly are, and to develop a healthy sense of self.
Kricket offers women’s, men’s, and children’s cuts and styling; highlights; lowlights; and color services, specializing in corrective color, transitioning from color to natural gray, and fantasy color. She enjoys doing hair and make-up for weddings and special occasions, and she also offers spa services by appointment.
Rachelle Rogers is a part time stylist and colorist and can be found at the salon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Originally from New York City, Rachelle has called Asheville, NC her home for the past twenty-five years, twenty of which have included working behind the chair. She approaches hair design as she does life, with ease, grace, and compassion, and aspires to provide her clients with a nurturing experience and flattering look that complements their unique beauty and lifestyle. Her services include women’s and men’s cuts and styling, single process color specializing in gray coverage, and lowlights.
When Rachelle is not at the salon, she is donning her other hats as website designer, jewelry designer, writer, editor, and author. Her passions include the arts, organic 85% dark chocolate, and her Ragdoll cat Michou.
